Character Construction Halloween Cat with Paper Piecing

Hi Dreamers!
It is all about Halloween here today!  I have been making Halloween cards and a treat bag with some really fun stamps from Character Construction.  I will be sharing all the projects through out the month of October to really get you in the Halloween mood.  Ohh, so spooky.......  Here is  the first card.

The stamps are from the Bird & Bee Paperie #16.  I paper pieced the image by stamping on Halloween and Fall themed decorative papers and cutting out.  

I added a diamond die cut strip, some rhinestones, and a bright orange ribbon.  


And how about a few fun challenges!!!

Amusing Challenges: Anything goes
365 Cards: color challenge
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything goes
The Hybrid Chick: use 7 things-2 dp's, 3 stamps, 1 ribbon, rhinestones

Stayed tuned for more Halloween fun all  here at Dreaming & Creating.  October is going to be a fun month!  I am going to try my hand at altering a domino!  Doesn't that sound like fun??!!!  Hope you are having a great weekend!!  Love ya.
